Today we are introducing the CrunchBase Startup Calendar to share upcoming events in the startup community.  Each week, we’ll send an email featuring upcoming events and their participating startups.

The first week of the Startup Calendar email will feature TechCrunch’s Seattle Meetup, taking place at the ShowBox at the Market this Thursday from 6-10PM.  Over 20 startups are participating in the Pitch-Off, a competition where each team is given 60 seconds to explain why their startup is awesome.  All participating startups are in stealth or private beta, but check out their CrunchBase profiles to see what they’re up to.  Among the Seattle participants is Hypejar, a site that quantifies anticipation for future product releases, Coach Cheetah, a platform for sports team and league managers, and MassRoots, a social network for marijuana users.

To take part in this program as an organization that hosts startup events, please ensure that you meet the following guidelines:

  • You should contact us at least a week in advance of your event
  • Your event should feature a minimum of 5 startups
  • You must provide us with a list of and information about the startups participating in the event

To submit your application, send us an email at We look forward to hearing from you!
